Lucas Pino's No Net Nonet: That's a Computer

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Lucas Pino is a New York-based tenor saxophonist who leads the No Net Nonet, a band that fits snugly into the jazz tradition but displays its own style of creativity. Despite what this CD's title suggests, this group's music is full of emotion and warmth.

That is evident from the outset with “Antiquity," written ...

Lucas Pino: That's a Computer

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dal 2013 il sassofonista e compositore Lucas Pino dirige il suo “No Net Nonet" esibendosi tutti i mesi allo Smalls Jazz Club di New York, senza trascurare altre scritture. L'organico è nato nel 2009, da allora ha cambiato solo un componente e la regolarità del rapporto spiega la coesione e l'equilibrio evidenziati in questo terzo album. ...

Lucas Pino: That's a Computer

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Lucas Pino's No Net Nonet has claimed a piece of turf within the vast, sprawling, crowded field of the jazz mainstream. Its brilliantly conceived and executed efforts resist additional stylistic distinctions.

Lucas Pino's No Net Nonet: That's a Computer

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Saxophonist Lucas Pino's adventurous New York-based No Net Nonet is on record for the third time with That's a Computer (yes, there's a story behind that but it's too lengthy to recount here), which underscores Pino's usual flair for anomalous compositions and arrangements. Except for drummer Jimmy Macbride, who came on board in 2017, every member ...

Rafal Sarnecki: Climbing Trees

Read "Climbing Trees" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Guitarist Rafal Sarnecki has put together a CD with an interesting combination of influences here. His music mixes together elements of classical chamber music and progressive jazz-rock which is played by a group with a front line of guitar, tenor sax and voice. The presence of a high, wordless female voice sometimes gives this the feel ...

Nick Finzer: No Arrival

Read "No Arrival" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

To say a musician has arrived is to create the ultimate paradox. For in that notion is the suggestion of reaching the upper echelon in the art form, but also an indication of the end of a journey and the start of stagnation. With the true seeker and master musician, there is no arrival; there's merely ...

Jorn Swart: Malnoia

Read "Malnoia" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Questo Malnoia è un lavoro singolare sin dalla composizione biografica dei suoi tre componenti, tutti presenti sulla scena newyorchese ma per due terzi di provenienza euroepa -olandese Jorn Swart, tedesco Benjamin Gutzeit -mentre l'ultimo membro, Lucas Pino, viene dall'Arizona. Ma ancor più singolare è il fatto che accanto al pianoforte del leader si trovino la viola ...
